I think it makes perfect sense to stock up whenever you can with whatever amount you want to spend. I don't see prices ever going down so economics say buy now if you need ammo. I think the debate is shooters vs hunters regarding sufficient reserves. I don't shoot hardly anything anymore except to sight-in, but it doesn't stop me from buying ammo at good prices and availability. I have a family member that probably has over 20K rounds of various ammo, he would say that's not enough! To each their own on this subject.
